A high school in Arizona didn’t win a contest for a free concert by Katy Perry, but they are still winners in Katy’s heart. A school in Colorado was announced the winner, but Katy Perry is giving a student from the Arizona high school a trip of a lifetime.
Katy Perry issued a challenge to students to make a video from her song “Roar” and the best one would get a free concert on campus. Students in Arizona entered the contest and gave it an inspirational twist.
One of the school’s video stars was Megan Squire, a school cheerleader who has overcome the challenges of Down syndrome.
When the winning school was announced, Katy Perry said she was inspired by Squire’s story and wanted to take Squire and her friends to an event this fall where Katy will be singing.
Katy said: “I have something very special for my friend, Megan, from Verrado High School. I want to bring Megan to a special event with me as my date, at an event I’m singing. I know which one it is. It’s going to be very exciting. We’re going to get dressed up. And I want to celebrate her and hear her roar in person. Megan, thank you so much. I love you. I love your spirit. You have really inspired me.”
